Timothée Chalamet's bedazzled harness wasn't the only menswear moment at the Golden Globes that had us frantically thinking up new 'fits for the new year. A slew of stylish gents turned up in a holiday staple and gave it fresh vibes for 2019: the velvet blazer. Yes, it's not just for looking fly at that New Year's Eve party — trust...

Take a page out of New York-based influencer Ian Crumm's style playbook, who knows that formalwear isn't entirely reserved for those fancy occasions.

Now, black or a more traditional shade is usually the move when it comes to tailoring — but we're continuing to make a case for dusky pink as a key neutral. Styled here with otherwise classic pieces, this is proof that the velvet blazer is way more versatile than anyone gives it credit for. Legendary.
